The term Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
can refer to at least two groups of people: those with mixed Indian and British (specifically English) ancestry, and people of British/English descent born or living in India. The latter sense is now mainly historical,[4][5] but confusions can arise. The Oxford English Dictionary, for example, gives three possibilities: "Of mixed British and Indian parentage, of Indian descent but born or living in Britain or (chiefly historical) of English descent or birth but living or having lived long in India".[6] People fitting the middle definition are more usually known as British Asian
British Asian
or British Indian. This article focuses primarily on the modern definition, a distinct minority community of mixed Eurasian ancestry, whose native language is English. During the centuries that Britain was in India, the children born to unions between British men and Indian women began to form a new community. These Anglo-Indians formed a small but significant portion of the population during the British Raj, and were well represented in certain administrative roles. The documented Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
population dwindled from roughly two million at the time of independence in 1947 to 300,000 - 1,000,000 by 2010. The nature of British-Indian relationships and stigma during the colonial period often meant that many Anglo-Indians were undocumented or incorrectly racially identified during the British Raj. Many have adapted to local communities in India

or emigrated to the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, the United States
United States
and New Zealand.[1][7] This process was replicated in many other meetings of European men (traders, soldiers, administrators, infrastructure builders, and so on) with women across the subcontinent, creating the Anglo-Burmese people in Myanmar

History[edit] An Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
gathering. The first use of "Anglo-Indian" was to describe all British people living in India. People of mixed British and Indian descent were referred to as "Eurasians". Terminology has changed, and the latter group are now called "Anglo-Indians",[8] the term that will be used throughout this article.

Creation[edit] During the British East India
India
Company's rule in India
India
in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, it was fairly common for British officers and soldiers to take local wives and have Eurasian children, owing to a lack of British women in India.[9][10] By the mid-19th century, there were around 40,000 British soldiers, but fewer than 2,000 British officials present in India.[11]

Neglect[edit] Originally, under Regulation VIII of 1813, they were excluded from the British legal system and in Bengal

– and yet found themselves without any caste or status amongst those who were to judge them. In 1821, a pamphlet entitled "Thoughts on how to better the condition of Indo-Britons" by a "Practical Reformer," was written to promote the removal of prejudices existing in the minds of young Eurasians against engaging in trades. This was followed up by another pamphlet, entitled "An Appeal on behalf of Indo-Britons." Prominent Eurasians in Calcutta formed the "East Indian Committee" with a view to send a petition to the British Parliament for the redress of their grievances. John William Ricketts, a pioneer in the Eurasian cause, volunteered to proceed to England. His mission was successful, and on his return to India, by way of Madras, he received quite an ovation from his countrymen in that presidency; and was afterwards warmly welcomed in Calcutta, where a report of his mission was read at a public meeting held in the Calcutta
Calcutta
Town Hall. In April 1834, in obedience to an Act of Parliament passed in August 1833, the Indian Government was forced to grant government jobs to Anglo-Indians.[12] As British women began arriving in India
India
in large numbers around the early to mid-19th century, mostly as family members of officers and soldiers, British men became less likely to marry Indian women. Intermarriage declined after the events of the Rebellion of 1857,[13] after which several anti-miscegenation laws were implemented.[14][15] As a result, Eurasians were neglected by both the British and Indian populations in India.

Consolidation[edit] Over generations, Anglo-Indians intermarried with other Anglo-Indians to form a community that developed a culture of its own. Their cuisine, dress, speech (use of English as their mother tongue), and religion (Christianity) all served to further segregate them from the native population. A number of factors fostered a strong sense of community among Anglo-Indians. Their English language
English language
school system, their Anglo-centric culture, and their Christian beliefs in particular helped bind them together.[12] They formed social clubs and associations to run functions, including regular dances on occasions such as Christmas
Christmas
and Easter.[16] Indeed, their Christmas
Christmas
balls, held in most major cities, still form a distinctive part of Indian Christian culture.[17] Over time Anglo-Indians were specifically recruited into the Customs and Excise, Post and Telegraphs, Forestry Department, the railways and teaching professions – but they were employed in many other fields as well. The Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
community also had a role as go-betweens in the introduction of Western musical styles, harmonies and instruments in post-Independence India. During the colonial era, genres including ragtime and jazz were played by bands for the social elites, and these bands often contained Anglo-Indian

members.[18]

Independence and choices[edit] A male Anglo-Indian

being washed, dressed and attended. During the independence movement, many Anglo-Indians identified (or were assumed to identify) with British rule, and, therefore, incurred the distrust and hostility of Indian nationalists.[citation needed] Their position at independence was difficult. They felt a loyalty to a British "home" that most had never seen and where they would gain little social acceptance. ( Bhowani Junction

community during the independence struggle.) They felt insecure in an India

that put a premium on participation in the independence movement as a prerequisite for important government positions. Many Anglo-Indians left the country in 1947, hoping to make a new life in the United Kingdom

or elsewhere in the Commonwealth of Nations, such as Australia
Australia
or Canada. The exodus continued through the 1950s and 1960s and by the late 1990s most had left with many of the remaining Anglo-Indians still aspiring to leave.[19] Like the Parsi community, the Anglo-Indians are essentially urban dwellers. Unlike the Parsis, the mass migrations saw more of the better educated and financially secure Anglo-Indians depart for other Commonwealth nations.[16]

21st century cultural resurgence[edit] There has been a resurgence in celebrating Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
culture in the twenty-first century, in the form of International Anglo-Indian Reunions and in publishing books. There have been nine reunions, with the latest being held in 2015 in Calcutta. Several narratives and novels have been published recently. The Leopard's Call: An Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
Love Story (2005) by Reginald Shires, tells of the life of two teachers at the small Bengali town of Falakata, down from Bhutan; At the Age for Love: A Novel of Bangalore during World War II (2006) is by the same author. In the Shadow of Crows (2009)[20] by David Charles Manners, is the critically acclaimed true account of a young Englishman's unexpected discovery of his Anglo-Indian

relations in the Darjeeling

heroine is caught up in a terrorist crisis in Sri Lanka. Where The Bulbul Sings (2011) by Serena Fairfax features a young Anglo-Indian

woman who seeks to deny her heritage and bury her past.[21]

Present communities[edit] India
India
constitutionally guarantees of the rights of communities and religious and linguistic minorities, and thus permits Anglo-Indians to maintain their own schools and to use English as the medium of instruction. In order to encourage the integration of the community into the larger society, the government stipulates that a certain percentage of the student body come from other Indian communities.[citation needed] Anglo-Indian

working for Indian RailwaysIn a 2013 BBC news
BBC news
feature on Anglo-Indians, journalist Kris Griffiths wrote: "It has been noted in recent years that the number of Anglo-Indians who have succeeded in certain fields is remarkably disproportionate to the community's size. For example, in the music industry there are Engelbert Humperdinck (born Madras), Peter Sarstedt (Delhi) and Cliff Richard
Cliff Richard
(Lucknow). The looser definition of Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
(any mixed British-Indian parentage) encompasses the likes of cricketer Nasser Hussain, footballer Michael Chopra
Michael Chopra
and actor Ben Kingsley."[22] Anglo-Indians distinguished themselves in the military. Air Vice-Marshal Maurice Barker was India's first Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
Air Marshal. At least seven other Anglo-Indians subsequently reached that post, a notable achievement for a small community. A number of others have been decorated for military achievements. Air Marshal Malcolm Wollen is often considered the man who won India's 1971 war fighting alongside Bangladesh.[23] Anglo-Indians made similarly significant contributions to the Indian Navy and Army.[24] Another field in which Anglo-Indians won distinction was education. The second most respected matriculation qualification in India, the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education, was started and built by some of the community's best known educationalists, including Frank Anthony, who served as its president, and A.E.T. Barrow, its secretary for the better part of half a century. Most Anglo-Indians, even those without much formal education, find that gaining employment in schools is fairly easy because of their fluency in English. In sporting circles Anglo-Indians have made a significant contribution, particularly at Olympic level where Norman Pritchard became India's first ever Olympic medallist, winning two silver medals at the 1900 Olympic Games
1900 Olympic Games
in Paris, France. In cricket Roger Binny was the leading wicket-taker during the Indian cricket team's 1983 World Cup triumph. Wilson Jones was India's first ever World Professional Billiards Champion. Several charities have been set up abroad to help the less fortunate in the community in India. Foremost among these is CTR (Calcutta Tiljallah Relief – based in the US), which has instituted a senior pension scheme, and provides monthly pensions to over 300 seniors. CTR also provides education to over 200 needy children.[25] In addition, CTR publishes the following books:

Of the estimated million or so (including descendants) who have emigrated from India[citation needed], some have settled in European countries like Switzerland, Germany, and France. According to the Anglo-Indians who have settled in Australia, integration for the most part has not been difficult.[27] The community in Burma frequently intermarried with the local Anglo-Burmese

Other populations[edit] Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
often only represents Indians mixed with British ancestry during the British Raj.[citation needed] There are many mixed Indians from other European countries during the colonial era. For example, the definition rarely embraces the descendants of the Indians from the old Portuguese colonies
Portuguese colonies
of both the Coromandel and Malabar Coasts, who joined the East India
India
Company as mercenaries and brought their families with them.[30] The definition has many extensions, for example, Luso-Indian
Luso-Indian
(mixed Portuguese and Indian) of Goa, people of Indo-French descent, and Indo-Dutch descent. Indians have encountered Europeans since their earliest civilization. They have been a continuous element in the sub-continent. Their presence is not to be considered Anglo-Indian. Similarly, Indians who mixed with Europeans after the British Raj
British Raj
are also not to be considered Anglo-Indian.[1][31]

Britons in the British East Indies and British India[edit] Historically, the term Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
was also used in common parlance in the British Government and England during the colonial era to refer to those people (such as Rudyard Kipling, or the hunter-naturalist Jim Corbett), who were of British descent but were born and raised in India, usually because their parents were serving in armed forces or one of the British-run administrations, such as its main government;[16] "Anglo-Indian", in this sense, was a geographically-specific subset of overseas or non-domiciled British.

Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
population in Britain[edit] Since the mid-nineteenth century, there has been a population of people of Indian (like Lascars) or mixed British-Indian ethnic origin living in Britain, both through intermarriage between white Britons and Indians, and through the migration of Anglo-Indians from India
India
to Britain. Indian-British interracial marriage began in Britain from the 17th century, when the British East India
India
Company began bringing over thousands of Lascar
Lascar
seamen to Britain, where they married local British women, due to a lack of Indian women in Britain at the time.[32] As there were no legal restrictions against mixed marriages in Britain,[32] families with Indian Lascar
Lascar
fathers and English mothers established interracial communities in Britain's dock areas.[33] This led to a growing number of "mixed race" children being born in the country; first-generation ethnic minority females in Britain were from the late 19th century until at least the 1950s outnumbered by mixed race descendants of British mothers and Indian fathers, first typically described as 'half-caste Indian' or less derogatorily 'half Indian', the loftier term 'Anglo-Indian' being used in middle and upper class circles.[34] Some Indian fathers in Britain were middle class, but the majority were working class — at the time World War I
World War I
began, 51,616 Lascar
Lascar
seamen were working in Britain.[35] Rarely domestically referred to as Anglo-Indians,[6] the term is dated in Britain. This is part due to the recognition of the longstanding other components of Britain (Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland) and partly a dwindling use of the 'Anglo-' prefix in Britain — it is almost exclusively seen in and associated with a few old, stalwart companies combined with -Irish and -American, in economic or racial studies of abroad and in medieval studies as "Anglo-Saxon". People of Indian or mixed British-Indian ethnicity living in Britain generally prefer the terms British Indian
British Indian
and mixed White-Asian and in predominent White European ancestry cases mostly but also among some first-generation mixed race individuals a self-identification is made as White British, a term open to such diversity before it became possible, since the integration of earlier immigration and inter-marriage, including southern European, tribes of darker-skinned Celts and Jewish diaspora over many centuries.[36] The last two categorisations are options given in the UK census
UK census
as is Mixed Race.

Population in other countries[edit] Bangladesh[edit] There is a significant population of Anglo-Indians in Bangladesh
Bangladesh
of almost 200,000.[37] The presence of Anglo-Indians in Bangladesh
Bangladesh
is since the British period. But their population had decreased to 4,000 in 1947 during the Partition of India
India
from the present region of Bangladesh. Most of them had migrated to United Kingdom, United States, Australia, New Zealand
New Zealand
and Canada. And during the 1971 Bangladesh
Bangladesh
Liberation War, almost 1,500 Anglo-Indians lost their lives during fighting in the war. But in 1970, one year before the war almost 9,000 Anglo-Indians had come from India. Then after the independence of Bangladesh, during 1974–1976 almost 28,000 Anglo-Indians had arrived in Bangladesh
Bangladesh
from India
India
to settle down. After that in 1980 there were reported birth of 37,500 Anglo-Indian children in Bangladesh. And in 1993 there were almost 103,713 Anglo-Indians living here. Then finally it rose up to 200,000 in 2016.[38] Bangladesh
Bangladesh
constitutionally provides rights and freedom to the Anglo-Indians to perform their culture, customs, traditions and religions freely. They are allowed to maintain their own colonies even. They mainly live in Dhaka, Chittagong
Chittagong
and Sylhet. So, there are Anglo-Indian
Anglo-Indian
shops, saloons, parlours and schools in this cities, especially in the colonies where they live. In Dhaka, specifically in Banani there have been many Anglo-Indian
